What the Pros are Saying: Interactive Guest Books, Bags & Boxes

What the Pros are Saying: Interactive Guest Books, Bags & Boxes

When I think of packaging and products for my brand, I think of high‑end pieces that will not only provide a remarkable experience for my clients, but also leave them with beautiful pieces for their home. I purchased Design Aglow's engagement guest book design a long time ago and have since created many for my couples to display at their wedding. Of course, they are always packaged in beautiful boxes and bags!

What I Wish I Knew: Making Your Business Work For You And Not The Other Way Around

One of the great things about running your own business is that, in theory, us business owners get to “call the shots”. We make all the decisions big and small, such as whether we run our business full or part-time, how and why we set our price points, the products we offer, our ideal clients, the list goes on.

As a photographer based in Charleston, SC, summer is my busiest time of the year. So instead of vacationing elsewhere, I like to escape in my own city for a few days at a time. Given that Charleston won the 2016  “World’s Best City” award by Travel & Leisure, after being a top city for the past four years, there’s plenty to see and do and see as a guest in my own city!

This April, my husband Austin and I finally had the opportunity to travel to the UK. It was a trip we had been dreaming about taking since we were married five years ago. At the time, finances were tight and we had other shorter trips and things going on, then we had a baby, and well, life happens. Like many people, it took us a while to finally make that jump across the pond. Our plans looked something like this…One full day and night in London, then a flight to Cork, Ireland where we rented a car and toured around the western side of the country. We then bussed to Dublin where we spent two days, then flew to Edinburgh, Scotland, where we met up with some friends of ours from back home. The four of us rented an AirBnb together and spent two days in the city and then took the train to Mallaig, from which we ferried over to the Isle of Skye.

3 Quick Tips for IPS Success

3 Quick Tips for IPS Success

We recently visited Maui, my favorite Hawaiian Island. It offers the perfect mix of people, city life, and the natural outdoors. We flew, of course, and it takes just about a full day of travel, from almost anywhere in the continental states. Hawaii has a big time difference so it’s smart to plan to avoid jet lag. I like to set my arrival time in Maui to around 9:00 p.m. island time, that way it’s easier to fall asleep when you get to your hotel.
